    From Our Lady to Mother Teresa M. of St. Joseph:

    "Excessive fear paralyzes the forward surge of souls. If they had not been excessively afraid, the apostles would not have left my Son alone when He was captured. For they were good, at heart. But too fearful. First, the enemies; then, of Jesus, because of their adandonment. Excessive fear produces Jansenism, and Jansenism increases fear because it instills the conviction that it is hard to be saved. And not only this, but in attenuating the spirit's embraces with Love, it makes the soul weaker and weaker."

    Peace be with you always
